|Fabrik Nos - Sustain EP [hi008] - Steve Eagle|
Heavy Industries returns to harder territory for the Sustain EP by Fabrik Nos. Emphasizing his interest in original techno, Fabrik gives us a wide range of tracks for a wide range of situations. The EP begins with the deep and slightly progressive Basement Love, infused with typical Fabrik Nos dark sound design yet funky enough for most listeners. Raising the tempo somewhat, Genetix hints at Fabrik's industrial roots with a strong minimal techno structure...

|Danny BlackBelt Andersen - Ninjastjerne EP [hi013] - Danny Andersen|
Finally, an exclusive EP from Norway's top techno ninja, Danny BlackBelt Andersen! We have been waiting years for this! The man is back in classic form on Ninjastjerne EP, mixing up Detroit, tribal, minimal and funky techno to give us four delectable tracks. We start with the title track which immediately draws our attention with its detailed, layered tribal rhythms. This is a slower tempo track but full of choice sounds and a tropical atmosphere...

|Fabrik Nos - The Things That Make You Happy [hi003] - Steve Eagle|
The Things That Make You Happy is an album dedicated to those who love techno. This 12-track release travels through several forms of the style, from minimal to housey to hard to tribal to deep, making more than a few passing nods to trance along the way. Most of the release is upbeat and highly danceable, characterized by clean, crisp production, wide atmospherics and Fabrik's signature dark touch...

|Fabrik Nos - Misguided [hi017] - Steve Eagle|
After an extended hiatus, Heavy Industries starts the new year of 2008 with Misguided from Fabrik Nos. The theme behind this release is distaste for watered down techno and the opener Murky Mischief makes this clear from the start. This is the most clubby of the four, marching steadily on, powerful drums mixing with a funky distorted bassline and eventually an EBM arpeggio for total dancefloor domination...

|Reptilian Agenda - Fatal Fang EP [hi002] - Nimrod Tsabari|
Israel's Nimrod Tsabari (as Reptilian Agenda) makes his HI deubt with the half-hour, continuously mixed Fatal Fang EP. Taking a step back from in-your-face dance music, hi002 is a release centered around swirling atmospherics, consistent percussion, dark drones and vague voices. While words like "trance" and "minimal" can be used to describe this EP, from its psytrance-styled synth melodies to its extremely repetitive nature, Nimrod crafts his sonic palette without care of classifications or gen...

|Simex - Journey to Kerguelen [hi006] - Evan LaPann|
Tech-house wizard Evan LaPann delivers four delicious tracks on his Heavy Industries debut. Expect warm, crisp production, healthy doses of deep pads and chords, and an umistakeable atmosphere that only Simex can capture the way he does. Under the Ocean is a perfect introduction to Simex's patented sound, serving equal portions of funk and atmosphere and suited for the dancefloor or lounge room alike...

|Figure - Maintenance EP [hi004] - Figure|
Figure is one of those elusive, anonymous Internet users who we can find basically no information on. However, for the brief period of time we were in contact with this guy/girl/thing (Figure claimes to be a robot initially designed to take measurments of various rock specimens), we heard a very strange style of music being produced: minimal techno made from found sounds, toys, field recordings and other unknown sources...

|Simex - Under the Ocean: The Remixes [hi007] - Various Artists|
This remix compilation is based on the opening track of hi006, Simex's lovely Under the Ocean. The feedback to this song - and EP - was so positive that we decided to offer the chance for other online producers to get involved with Heavy Industries and do some remixing. We were quite pleased with several of the mixes and we'd like to warmly thank everyone who contributed. Stylistically, hi007 is all over the place, ranging from funky electro, to lush tech-house, to atmospheric drum and bass, to ...

|Rasterfeld - Sides [hi005] - Tero Lindeman|
Sides is a rough, tough intelligent EP full of solid techno percussion, minimal loops, strong cymbals and the occasional reference to the older days of acid techno. Rasterfeld's tracks are best used opening up a hard techno set, or serving as a change of pace from the standard techno fare that can get repetitive after awhile. Fabrik Nos makes a guest appearance on track 4, remixing an unreleased Rasterfeld track into something a bit harder and more DJ friendly...

|Simex - Blame [hi012] - Evan LaPann|
Simex returns to Heavy Industries with three exclusive and exceptional tunes on Blame, further solidifying his reputation as one of the top producers of deep techno in the United States. Blame is Simex's most polished and mature release to date, at times drawing comparisons to Underworld with its hypnotic textures and arrangements, slick changeups and high production values. Trust us, it's quite good...

|Emilsson - Another [hi009] - Magnus Emilsson|
The Swedish tech house maestro Emilsson gives us four standout tracks that travel the spectrum of his chosen genre. Part 1 starts the journey slowly, deeply, subdued. Restrained chords, deep consistent drums and a spacious feel make this one of Emilsson's sexiest. Part 2 was designed more with the dancefloor in mind, a flawless house affair combining chunky rhythms with floaty chord stabs and a mid-90s atmospheric feel...

|Section One - Replaced EP [hi011]|
With releases on Primevil and several other Swedish labels, Mikael Nykvist is no stranger to the game. His sharp and mature production style is immediately recognizable, a style that gives credit to the sounds of his homeland while offering an original take on the formula. Mike offers us four solid tracks that are quite DJ friendly and we encourage all the Final Scratch and Traktor users out there to take note...
|Phonon - Mindset [hi018] - Ryan Jones|
Phonon, the first artist that joined Heavy Industries, might be the last to have his own release, but that's quite alright - this is one seriously sick, twisted and psychedelic romp through the world of techno and well worth the wait. Mindset is composed of three distinct tracks - Translator, Databass and Mindset - though they are all inseparable from each other and were originally recorded in one extended mix...

|Ceroform - Vicious Mind [hi016] - BjÃ¶rn Bommersheim & Bastian GÃ¶tz|
Our first release for 2006 is the much-anticipated EP from Bochum, Germany residents, BjÃ¶rn Bommersheim and Bastian GÃ¶tz, under the project title Ceroform. Their style can best be described as a mix between dancefloor-conscious and atmospheric, the type of techno you can throw into just about any set. We begin this versatile 4 tracker wtih the title track, Vicious Mind. Bittersweet melodies sit against deep consistent percussion at a laid back tempo...

|R.V. Aggelen - Bloody Bassdrum EP [hi014] - Ronald van Aggelen|
R.V. Aggelen shows us why he is so respected in online techno with the Bloody Bassdrum EP. With excessive amounts of bland, hard techno saturating the market over the years, it's refreshing to hear this sort of music made with intelligence and creativity. These four tracks are perfect examples of sound design done right, and not only that, they also show a certain artistic creativity that is consistent throughout...

|Arthur Oskan - Immunity [hi015] - Arthur Oskan|
We welcome our second Restructured Recordings artist to our digital domain: Arthur Oskan. With a crisp, deep sound that betrays his minimal techno influences, Arthur naturally fits into that grey area between repetition and progression. Immediately with Accurate Themes you will be drawn into this sparse environment, presenting nice 808 percussion and delicate chords riding on top of a nostalgic bassline...
|Various Artists - phase01 [hi001] - Various Artists|

We printed a very limited amount for this release but if you missed out the first time, all the tracks are now available here on the site. This release goes everywhere from hard tribal techno to dense trance, covering our preferred styles along the way, and remaining consistently danceable...
